. >> well-done. good job. >> coming up on c-span2, a look at egypt's parliamentary elections next month. that is followed by comcast ceo brian roberts on the future of cable and where technology is headed. then a look at the 10th anniversary of the iraq war with a discussion of how it has changed the middle east. and with congress on its spring recess this week we'll take the opportunity to show you booktv in prime time every week night. tonight, three books on u.s. innovation. it begins at 8:30 eastern. >> let's got straight to a personal topic. it has been, you've been on the commission since 2006. the chairman has been on i believe since 2009. his term is up. yours will be up next year. should we expect to see some turnover at the commission? >> you always expect to see turnover at the commission because we all have staggered terms. >> right. >> the past six years flown by very quickly and, we shall see. stay tuned. i get asked this question every couple of years. and when you've been there almost seven years you get asked at inflection points about this. i openly thinking about it b
him. not an elected official, but a bureaucrat doing this. this is the problem and the concern i have for the future of the usa and i do not own a gun. thank you. g: i mean, that is a valid point. it is important to point out that all of the measures under consideration, the assault weapons ban, the prohibition on high-capacity ammunition magazines, they would not be retroactive. the government would not take away guns that someone currently owns. they were just ban you from being able to purchase the gun in the future. that is why we have seen so many long lines at the gun store, where people are buying weapons they fear might be banned in the future, but the government would not take them away if you already own them. host: we saw a piece recently in "bloomberg businessweek" looking at the power of the nra and the debates over guns. they go over some items for gun control opponents to remember him calling them "hard realities. why is that not translating into votes in congress? guest: it is partly because the gun rights groups, the nra, manufacturers, sporting associations, have bee
between who has the authority to regulate elections. the election clause of the constitution actually gives authority to both. but where is the line when one crosses or goes too far than the other does? so that's the issue before the court. it wasn't clear today that it's going to be an easy line to find. >> ifill: the reason why this arizona law exists is because arizona officials say there's a problem involving illegal or undocumented immigrants registering to vote fraudulently. is there any evidence... did they present evidence today that that's a big problem? >> no, not today. in fact, there was more argument on the other side that there is no problem. but what arizona is saying is there is also a problem with the federal law. the federal law doesn't require proof that citizenship. but the way it deals with citizenship as eligibility for registration is it requires the applicant who wants to register to vote to sign under oath that the applicant meets all of the requirements of the federal law. arizona's attorney general thomas horn today told the court that that was an honor roll
to the last election. rove wastes no time firing back. >>> also today, a deep dive. previewing president obama's trip to the middle east this week. will expectations grow for a major peace plan progress before the end of his presidency? >>> good morning from port aransas, texas. >> it's monday, march 18th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." >> now here's chuck todd! >> big thank you to maddie and noah salazar. on spring break at port aransas, texas. first reads of the morning. by the way, see the beach when it's sleeting behind me is kind of a nice little picture there. >>> right now republican party chairman reince priebus is unveiling his own autopsy of what went wrong in 2012. while the report blames the process more than gop prince ips or policy position it also admits more problems than you might expect. >> there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary debate process needed improvement. there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> pretty brutal report. based
reince priebus unveiling a 100-page taups that breaks down the failures of the 2012 election and the report is a harsh assessment of the challenges facing the gop. >> there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there is a long list of them. >> priebus says the republican national committee should do a few things immediately about some of the problems spelled out in the report, starting with a $10 million outreach program targeting african-american latino and younger voters, a rt shoer primary season, fewer debates and an earlier convention. more emphasis on early voting. an as that he can of voter turnout where democrats have fared much better. and the report also suggests using more hollywood celebrities to help change perceptions. and it plans to rip a page from the obama play book by launching a complete revamp of digital technology. senior editor mark murray is here with more on what th
immigrants from voting and national elections. ktvu looks at the issue and tells us why some say the law actually makes it harder for legal citizens to vote. >> reporter: voting is a light only granted to u.s. citizens but in arizona the attorney general wants to guarantee that election fraud won't occur and that illegal immigrants won't try to vote in federal elections. >> we have a right to require additional information to satisfy ourselves that someone is a citizen. >> right now arizona requires proof of citizenship like a drivers license to register to vote in state elections. the supreme court will decide whether or not the state can demand proof of citizenship on federal voter registration forms. the supreme court heard arguments from both sides this morning. >> specifically whether congress has the ability to provide for a simple male voter registration form that can be used in any state. this is about the basic right to vote. >> here in california you don't have to show proof of u.s. citizenship to register to vote. all you have to do is sig
win elections. that steve core knacky is 1-1. they hope to reverse the massive losses. over 6%, i'm told, of black voters back mitt romney. 6%, and that number seems high to me. you cannot win with number like that especially when people of color will soon be the majority in this country. also, our plans to improve communication wet voers while also cutting the number of presidential debates. why let you know what you really think. they want to move the convention earlier in the summer so they can tap into cash sooner. that's a great idea. and there is a push to close the digital media and tech gaps and all this sounds easily achievable if you listen to preebus. >> we know we have problems. we've identified them and we're implementing the solutions to fix them. to be clear, our principles are sound. we will do a better job of connecting with people, to our principles, showing how we can help every american climb the economic ladder. especially in communities we haven't been in a long time, but b what it means to be paubl. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic, comm
to get to is the political dynamics in terms of how it affects elections. and the biggest disease in washington in my opinion, is people care more about the next election than they do the future of the country. so if we get to a grand bargain ul have some people come off and quit worrying about whether or not they want to get reelected and try to fix the country and if we don't it will be about people protecting their political positions and the country will suffer markedly from it. >> on that point, the house this week passed what by most measures would be considered a highly political document, their budget. the senate is getting ready to pass its own budget which is another political document. neither -- >> it is just as highly political. >> i am not disagreeing. neither has a chance of becoming law. so i wonder why you and your colleagues aren't spending more time trying to find middle ground instead of going through what are effectively show votes. >> they want to get paid. and if they don't pass the budget they won't get paid. that's number one. number two, is having finally
newspaper this morning -- a story by gina smith for the island. turnout will decide today's election for the first congressional seat in south carolina. gina smith is joining us on the phone this morning. gina smith, tell me about this race. who is running and why? guest: good morning. this is like christmas morning for me. i'm so excited. this is really an exciting race, because 18 republicans, two democrats, an incredibly crowded field but some of the names in this race just make it delicious to watch. we have mark sham ford, the former governor who most of the nation remembers as the guy who slipped out of the country in 2009 so he could visit his mistress, and he -- everyone thought he was hiking the appalachian trail but he was up with a female. so governor sanford is back on his redemption tour, we also family member 's and steven colbert, the comedian, his sister. and a lot of mudslinging which outh carolina is infamous for. host: so sanford is is leading for the primary? guest: yes. it was a comeback story that you thought if it happened it would be five or eight years from n
and listen to the president on this. >> we're after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants and we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information, everything about that, we've had more testimony and more paper provided to congress than ever before, and congress is sort of running out of things to ask. >> well, look, the president's preamble to the statement says it all. we're after an election. before the election, after this happened on the anniversary of 9/11 the president was less than truthful with the american people and tried to keep a lid on this for his own political purposes, didn't match his message. after the election he claims he's given everything. what more can we give. we've given papers. mr. president it's not the papers that you give it's the papers that are relevant and the identification of the witnesses who were there and experienced the attacks and responded to the attacks and saved livelis. these are the peopl
about his plans to compromise after the u.s. election. >> after my election i'll have more flexibility. >> as in putin. the pentagon is scrapping phase four of the european missile defense. the sm-3 block missile interceptors to stop intercontinental ballistic missiles or icbms like the ones iran is attempting to build. the pentagon said the decision has nothing to do with russia. >> let me emphasize the strong and continued commitment of the united states to nato missile defense. that commitment remains ironclad. >> we lost a bargainship, serious one i believe. >> others say the stage four were never viable and wouldn't be ready soon enough. >> the military implication of not developing phase four is not that great. the existing program is probably good enough. >> initial reaction from russia suggests their leaders do not feel "appeased." russia deputy foreign minister said this is not a concession to russia and we don't see it as such. >> bret: jennifer griffin at the pentagon. thank you. iran says it has launched domestically built destroyer in the caspian sea. this is video from ir
to our colleagues in congress that fear is not an option. fear of not being read elected, we are paralyzed right now. we have to stop it. >> is there anything that congress can pass to curb the piling -- violence? there is nothing that can be done that would protect our children in the vast majority of america, do you agree with that? >> i refuse to believe that. i am hoping that we will pass some version of a repeal of a writer that has been attached to the appropriations bill. all of us are trying to work to repeal the amendment, which means that it would make it easier for law enforcement to conduct gun tracing efforts. right now they are preventing so many ways. i think there are some measures. uphill battle, but we have to ask the american people that this is a wake-up call. we have to rally around, ensuring that your members of congress are accountable to what you believe will provide for safety for our children. >> when this newtown, connecticut, this situation happened, they were horrified and felt that this was the tipping point. this was the signal moment that somet
game. >> and i won and he didn't. and the bottom line is -- >> you won in the elections -- >> i won in the elections, i had to win in 2009. christie and bob mcdonald in blue states. like new jersey, purple states like virginia. we laid down the ground game. national, 50-state strategy, we didn't have to go through the hoopla of press conferences, we just went out and did the heavy work of rebuilding the party. coming off of massive losses in 2006 and 2008. so raince is just being silly. i understand that, he wasn't complaining about debt and concern about debt when i was writing checks to wisconsin when he was chairman and wanted to win the state legislature, which they did. win the governorship, which they did. we focused both at the federal and the state level. and at the end of the day, the members were all on board about going into debt to win. now the rnc had a surplus, they had money in the bank at the end of the 2012 cycle. but they had nothing to show for it you lose eight house seats, you don't win the white house, when you should, that to me is more than enough evidence of
. coming up next, michael steele former chairman of the rnc party. he will weigh in on the 2012 election and ralph nader, a consumer, advocate, and past president of canada will look at the disparity between ceo pay and minimum-wage. we will be right back. >> going straight to a personal poppet. 11 on the commission since 2006. the chairman has been on since late 2009. his term is up. yours will be of next year. should we expect to see turnover at the commission? >> we do not have staggered terms. the past six years has flown by very quickly. and we shall see. i get asked this question every couple of years. we of been there almost seven years. inflection points like this. we shall see. shall see what? >> about what to do next. i did not think we should stay in these positions for ever, but at the same time, i love my job. that is part of what is keeping me here. we of a lot of a born work to do. of important work to do. we spoke with the commissioners before his announcement. hear more tonight on "the communicators." tonight on first ladies, called a bigamist and adults were during her
and pacific communities. so the first time that they hear from us isn't days or weeks before an election. that they've got ton know some folks, they've seen familiar faces that share their principles that talk about how our policies impact their families. and i think that's something is that we're committed to doing. and that the chairman launched today. >> you talk about faces and getting in early. the report talked about young republicans. it says on messaging we must change our tone, especially on certain social issues that are turning off young voters. in every session with young voters social issues were at the forefront of the discussion. many see them as the civil rights issues of our time. we must be a party that is welcoming and inconclusive for all voters. sean, put ago side how candidates look, does that mean you'll look for candidates that are more accepting for things like same-sex marriage? >> no, what it means and this is something that ronald reagan said in practice, which means my 80% sfrend not my 20% enemy. the principles are sound. is this not a question of how do we
obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fan
arizona law is valid. some say it tries to keep immigrants from voting and national elections. ktvu looks at the issue and tells us why some say the law actually makes it harder for legal citizens to vote. >> reporter: voting is a light only granted to u.s. citizens but in arizona the attorney general wants to guarantee that election fraud won't occur and that illegal immigrants won't try to vote in federal elections. >> we have a right to require additional information to satisfy ourselves that someone is a citizen. >> right now arizona requires proof of citizenship like a drivers license to register to vote in state elections. the supreme court will decide whether or not the state can demand proof of citizenship on federal voter registration forms. the supreme court heard arguments from both sides this morning. >> specifically whether congress has the ability to provide for a simple male voter registration form that can be used in any state. this is about the basic right to vote. >> here in california you don't have to show proof of u.s. citizenship to register to vote. all you have to
is the surest way to lose the next election, that is one of the conclusions? >> right. it says that you can't act hostile to immigrants or hispanic americans or have hostile rhetoric and expect them to vote for you. it may not be the number one issue for immigrant americans or hispanic americans but it is one of those issues where you have to sound like you're welcoming before they can look at other issues. so that was one of the areas where they recommended. and frankly, a lot of republicans are already on board with this, leading the way is marco rubio obviously and the gang of eight which is pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. jon: we've seen president obama going in for soft media interviews, "people" magazine, "the view", "the daily show" with jon stewart. republicans have to do the same thing according to this report. >> sounds a little bit frivolous but maybe it is but one of the suggestions in the report that republicans do more apearns poos on colbert report and daily show and do interviews with "us weekly." they have very serious proposals in the report. some things whic
, it will be increasingly difficult for republicans to win another presidential election in the near future. host: you heard chairman reince priebus talking about that $10 million inclusion effort, one of the many recommendations that he's set to give at the national press club this morning. you can actually watch that on one of our sister networks at 8:30. here's the headline from the "usa today" on that effort. republicans to spend $10 illion on inclusion -- host: we'll be talking about that in the first 45 minutes of the "washington journal" today. we're taking calls from just republicans. up first is bob from philadelphia, pennsylvania. bob, thanks for calling in this morning. caller: good morning. how are you, sir? host: good. your thoughts on this new effort? caller: i think that they are still missing a little bit of the point here. i think the biggest problem is uninformed voters. all they hear all day long is just background noise from mainstream media. i was a staunch liberal democrat. i truly was, until i started doing my own research and finding my own facts. even my mom and dad were staunch lib
winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and the regime in damascus. >> may made it clear members of congress and people in america are increasingly watching what iraq is doing and wondering how it is that a partner in the efforts for democracy and a partner for whom americans feel they have tried so hard to be helpful, how that country can be in fact doing something that makes it more difficult to achieve our common goals? >> reporter: so far however the shiite-dominated malaki government has not closed its airspace to the shiite regime in tehran. follow me on twitter at at james rosen@fnc i will tell you who else from the iraqi government recently got the same message. jon and jenna. jon: james rosen, thank you. we'll have more on secretary kerry's surpris
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to step down, michigan's carl levin. yesterday on her facebook page, former governor jennifer granholm announced not to run for his seat. >>> and the president is on his way home right now. president obama spent four days in the middle east meeting with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders. his last stop to jordan's ancient city of petra, known to some as one of the seven wonders of the world. known to others as home to indiana jones' excellent adventures. >>> president obama and his team are enroute, home from the middle east. but they left one member of their party behind. secretary of state john kerry. martin fletcher is live for must tel aviv with more. martin, good to see you, sir. who is kerry planning on meeting with? >> reporter:
, including san francisco began granting licenses to same sex couples. on election night, as they elected the first african-american president of the united states, born of an interracial marriage, on that night california voters chose president barack obama and passed proposition 8. stripping same sex california couples of their freedom to marry. which is what made this moment so extraordinary. president obama who just a few months before had articulated his own support for marriage equality stood on the steps of the capitol immediately after taking the oath of office for the second time and articulated that lbgt rights are part of the freedom and fairness in america. >> we the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebearers through selma and stone wall. >>> so here in nerdland with us to mark this moment in the struggle is california congresswoman and senior democratic whip, barbara lee. alongside the great kenji yoshi yoshino, professor at new york's university law school. lisa d
before registering to vote in national elections. g.o.p. supporters say the law keeps illegal immigrants from voting and help stop voter fraud. but democrats oppose the measure and say it discourages minorities who tend to vote for democrats. keeping a key group from heading into the polls. shannon bream is live in the d.c. funeral tonight in. how does it look like how does it look like it will go? >> it comes down to a federal voter registration form. the law simply requires to you check a box indicating that you are a u.s. citizen, sign attesting to that fact and drop it in the mail. as justice ginsburg said today goat the statute says each state must accept and use the federal form, period. that's the end of it justice scalia seemed very skeptical that the form is enough to discourage those that are trying to commit voter fraud, during the arguments he said this check off i'm a citizen, right? so it's under oath, big deal. if you are willing to violate the voting laws you are willing to violate the perjury laws. arizona says that's why it needs to see those extra documents, shep. >> s
expertise to this because half of the board members are elected but essentially public emplooees in california and don't have any qualifications for being on the board. they have to make changes legislatively taken care of. gerri: the people getting hurt here, does not necessarily the pension, it is taxpayers. what is the price tag of this? >> here is the thing, a recent report put calpers in the bottom 5% in the country among investment returns several years. this is not right. this is a state that has enormous unfunded pension liabilities and projected 7.5% annual returns every year, they are going to be one of the worst performers. so there is a history really of mismanagement that really needs to be changed, they need professional management. gerri: the problem is how do you tear apart, how do you break away elected officials and the unions themselves because it seems to me the two of them coming together that create this unholy alliance that causes this to happen. >> the real problem is so heavily board is elected by members and basically union friendly, all you need is a co

side, who got elected with 90% plus of african american vote, and what we see happening in inner cities around the country with gun violence, you know, there's a lot of work that we have to do in our mritpolitical systems, but one of the key things is really deal with money in politics. the overwhelming reach that these lobby groups like the nra can have in drowning out the voice of every day people. >> cenk: yeah, i think you are right. the assault weapons and high capacity magazines, they dropped those already. diane i want to go back back to wayne lapierre. let's watch this together. >> the whole thing universal checks is a dishonest premise. there is not a bill on the hill that provides a universal check. the shooters in tucson and arrow, newtown, they are not going to be checked. they are unrecognizable. diane how do you respond to that? >> well, it -- the logic doesn't make sense. if you follow that through, criminals don't respond to any law, okay. so if we are going to follow that through we wouldn't have passed any laws. we need to put obstacles in th

relationship, of course, alex. pope benedict xvi even before the pope francis was elected pledged obedience and reverence to the next pope just to make sure that there was no doubt that he wouldn't put any of his authority in doubt, and pope francis on his side has said all along on numerous occasions that he has gratitude or expressed his gratitude towards the work done by pope benedict xvi during his eight years of pontificate. even called him a couple of times on the phone. the first night after his election he called him up to express his gratitude and then he called him again on saint joseph day after the mass of the installation mass, as saint joseph, of course, was also the day for joseph ratzinger, the real name of cardinal of pope benedict xvi. we're all here waiting to see whether the pope appears on the balco balcony, but also to see how that meeting goes. >> i did appreciate that one of the first things the pope did upon being elected was offer prayers for benedict. so clearly they must have a very good relationship. claudio, thank you so much. >>> in about an hour, president ob

friend bebe. he knows, benjamin netanyahu just won re-election like the president has. the netanyahu is likely to be in the job for a while. he is fated to have to deal with him. so it makes sense to have this kind of at least, get the relationship back into at least a, some kind of, lack of hostility at a minimum. jon: it was written in one of the papers that the president offered to israel or israelis the kind of warm embrace that they are accustomed to getting from american presidents but they hadn't gotten from this president up till now. >> no, they haven't. there is no question about that. in fact the first term was full of testy exchanges and i think that the president thought, okay, i can twist israel's arm and make them do this. it turns out he really can't. he needs their trust. now he also went to ramallah and met with the palestinian authority leader where they were a lot warier about u.s. commitments and you think he discovered that, there is still a long, way, jon, for there to go between if we get peace between the palestinians and israelis. it is an interesting questi

of every sexual encounter she ever ha h. with the deceased travis al >> alisyn: election an der but cannot remember the moment she stabbed him 27 times or slit his throat or shot him in the head is because jody diarias suffers from ptsd. post-traumatic stress disorder much like the veterans coming home from the iraq war or afghanistan and she has partial, as a result, partial amnesia. as you you can imagine the prosecutor in the case juan martinez, who is extremely provocative and impassioned wasn't having any of samuel's remarks. he suggested that samuels had fallen kind of in love with jody diarias in all their 30 hours of interviews and as a result not being objective. samuels was also questioned by the jurors. arizona has this weird law where jurors can also ask questions. they peppered him also with 100 questions. also extremely skeptical i have a theory, bill. i think that samuels and the defense the defendant herself have laid the foundation for at least one or two of those jurors to portray her as the damsel in distress as compared to juan martinez, the prosecutor who is a bully, w

to correct that image. mark mckinnon said he helped push get elected, he helped mccain get nominated. when it comes to what he's doing now, he is bipartisan of late. he formed an organization -- >>steve: mark mckinnon, not the president. >>brian: he's saying right now the image he's projecting with this new organization that he started and the shutdown of the white house tours while you still have calligraphers on the payroll -- you can't lay off a calligrapher to not do a super bowl roman numeral for a week but you've got to stop white house tours, you can't bring in volunteers to bring around the tourists instead of shutting it down? so he thinks it is a really bad image to portray. >>steve: it is. here's one other image that is embarrassing. the big union -- >>brian: i think we're boring aingely. >> this is my studio. i'm allowed to sit back. what were you saying? >>steve: i was saying in san francisco, the biggest labor union is seiu. they represent the most people who work for the city of san francisco. it's kind of ironic that apparently seiu local 1021, the membership has voted to g
of skirmishes that can happen in a party after a disappointing loss in a big election which is what we are looking at here. these two you will notice are not quarreling over ideas. they are -- it's not their positions on the issues vary widely. these are a position about whether karl rove should be applying his strategic knowledge to the campaign or whether that job should fall to somebody else. and in the end it doesn't really matter because the strategy and tactics of the upcoming campaign, which is still years away will be decided upon by the candidate and that candidate's team. so, you know, this is just sort of after action skirmishing i think. it may last a while. >> bill: isn't there a purity issue in the republican party now where sarah palin and some other very committed serves -- conservatives think that karl rove isn't pure enough to be a republican. he is a kel out. a watered down guy, the rhino thing. republican in name only. isn't that still in play? >> yeah, and that's been a feature of republican party politics for as long as i can remember. there was always this segmen
a few hours earlier, six days after his election, argentine cardinal jorge mario was formally installed as pop francis and you can see him receiving his papal ring, which is secondhand and not solid gold, in keeping with the pope's already famous disdain for worldly trapping. another big departure from the customs of his predecessor. he greeted his flock from an open-topped suv, kissing babies. you can't kiss babies through bulletproof glass, so this is what he decided. and in his homoly, the pope held up the st. joseph, whose feast day is today, as the model of a loving and faithful protector of god's creations. >>> president obama is preparing for his first presidential trip to israel and he's leaving this evening, expected to talk with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu about middle east peace, syria, iran. it's a pretty thick list. the president is also going to stop in the west bank and jordan. >>> jodi arias has a pretty good memory when it comes to her sex life with her former boyfriend, travis alexander, and pretty graphic detail, in fact. however, she can't remember some
